Can you feel the love? As Valentine's Day approaches, book bloggers are showing their appreciation for their readers by hosting a variety of celebrations and giveaways.

Seasons of Humility is hosting a Season of Love Blog Party, so be sure to stop by this week as well for interviews, guestposts, and giveaways.
Last month, I wrote a Really Random Tuesday post on the topic of book blogger loyalty. This inspired a thoughtful, well-written post on Petty's blog, Pen and Paper. If this topic interests you, stop by and join the discussion, if you haven't already done so.
In the past, POM Wonderful has generously sent me pomegranate juice and teas to sample, which I loved. This time, Ryan from POM Wonderful sent me some pomegranate juice concentrate to sample. Thank you, Ryan! To begin with, I used it to make juice by adding water, and have also added a few drops to my green tea and orange juice. The flip-top cap makes it easy to pour and mix. Later, I tried mixing this 100% pure pomegranate juice concentrate with Perrier, and created a refreshing and healthy sparkling drink. I like the tart but not too tart flavor. Pomegranate, as you probably already know, is a superfood, loaded with antioxidants. If anyone has any creative ideas about how to use the concentrate--in cocktails, confections, or other culinary creations--please let me know. POM Wonderful does have a website with many recipes that use pomegranate juice, including one for pink velvet cupcakes, which would be perfect for Valentine's Day.
Really Random Tuesday is a way to post odds and ends--announcements, musings, quotes, photos--any blogging and book-related things you can think of. If you're inspired by this idea, feel free to copy the button and use it on your own blog. Leave a link in the comments if you’re participating and I'll add it to this post.
